Online registrations for the seventh edition of the Xross Challenge race are open now, and they will be until September 20. After that date, riders will be able to sign-up only at the race. Xross Challenge race will be held from 2. to 4. October at Tara Mountain in Serbia and two days before the race Xross Team will organize enduro tours across this beautiful mountain. Xross Team is optimistic that the current global emergency situation will stabilize by the end of the summer, so there won’t be any problems with traveling to Serbia and the race itself. However, we are monitoring the situation closely, and we will inform riders regularly.
In comparison with previous years, when the race took place in the summer months, this time, we moved the challenge for the autumn. We can’t wait to see if Tara will be more challenging in October then it was in May and June, and we believe that you are curious about that, too. One sure thing is there will be no short of adrenaline and challenges, because we are already in search for some new, never before ridden tracks.
To register for the race, you need to fill in the form on our website. Please, be sure to fill all fields correctly, and to give us your proper email address, because we’ll be using that address to send you all information regarding the race.
Like in previous years, the race will have three categories – PRO, EXPERT, and HOBBY, but this time we will also create different rankings for Veterans 40+, Veterans 50+, and Women. Veterans 40+ will be riding the same tracks as Expert class, while Veterans 50+ will be riding Hobby class tracks.
We advise you to read Xross Rules and Regulations before signing up.

Global Health Situation
We are aware of the current health situation and state of emergency worldwide. However, we are optimistic that by the time of the race, the situation will return to normal. According to current estimations by the European Union, the state borders in the majority of Europe should be open by the end of the summer. That means that by the beginning of October, when the Xross Challenge race is scheduled, there should not be any problems with traveling.
If Serbia imposes some additional measures for entering the country, we will inform you promptly. Xross Team is monitoring the situation closely, and if it turns out that we can’t hold the race, after all, we will inform you about that too, also on time. In such a case, we will refund the money to all riders who have paid the tuition fee. However, the bank fee for the transfer will be deducted from the amount of the registration fee.
Accept the challenge, sign-up!
As we have previously told, we are optimistic that the entire situation will stabilize and that this October, we will have fun riding the best endure challenge so far. We believe that you, too, are eager to ride in nature with friends, after this quarantine period. Don’t hesitate, SIGN-UP!
